    Game Thread: Yankees@Twins 7/4 2:00PM

    Game-time forecast: Partly cloudy. Winds blowing in from right field at 10-15 m.p.h. Temperature around 75.

    While I have a pocket of internet... Let's do this. ChiTown will post lineups here.

    YANKEES:
    SP, Whitley

    Gardner LF
    Roberts 2B
    Ellsbury CF
    Teixiera 1B
    Beltran DH
    Suzuki RF
    Cervelli C
    Johnson 3B
    Ryan SS

    TWINS:
    SP, Gibson

    Dozier 2B
    Suzuki C
    Parmelee LF
    Morales 1B
    Arcia RF
    Plouffe 3B
    Colabello DH
    Escobar SS
    Fuld CF

    ---------------------------------------

    Things to think about:

    1. Hotels -- In the year 2014... I'm not sure how a hotel can get away with not having fantastic Wi-Fi in all rooms. But the Hotel I'm staying at struggles to load anything. However the pillows look arranged real nice when we walked in the room... All fluffy and clean. It's a good thing since I might as well just go to sleep with a circle spinning around and around on my I-Pad not loading anything. I am standing next to the door posting since my page happened to load in this spot and this spot only. If I walk a foot in either direction... It goes back to spinning. Anyway... It's 2014... Internet service in hotels should be more important than fluffy pillows.

    2. Phil Hughes -- The Ol' Crooked number got him again yesterday. It's been his only bugaboo all year... The occasional big inning. He was out dueling Tanaka for 4 innings and then came the 5th.

    3. Kyle Gibson -- Hughes and Gibson have become our 1-2 Punch... It's more like a 1-2 slapping because our hitters haven't been helping. Hughes missed with his slap yesterday but not to fear... Kyle Gibson is here.

    4. New Yorkers -- New Yorkers sound different than Minnesotans do. And when a New Yorker is watching a game at Target Field in the middle of Minnesotans. When Beltran homers... They stand up and yell at all of us. They taunt us all... They say... Take that... And they point their fingers... They even tell us to F you... I was laughing... Because. I knew that the entire section could take that guy and was thinking about it.

    5. The 4th of July -- It was July 4th 1776... America the Beautiful with Spacious Skies declared its independence from England. I'm told it was an important time in our history. Without this Declaration of Independence... In theory we would still be dependent. At some point in time my kids will declare independence... And only come over for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'm sure they will save the date it happens and shoot off fireworks as well. Yelling Happy 12th of May or whenever. I was 18 when I declared my independence and moved to New Mexico... I was 19 when I came back home declaring a false start on my earlier Declaration of Independence. Eventually... I did it... I became fully independent and then I got married!!! Marriage is a lot like taxation without representation. Anyway... Happy Birthday America!!!

    Believe it or not, this is often intentional as it increases PPV sales.

    In many hotels, it isn't even free (except in the lobby). More often in the U.S. it is, not so most everywhere else.

    I hate when the visiting teams' fans 'misbehave' like that in a home team stadium. Instead of thoughts of 'taking them,' next time, spread the word, and the minute they pipe up in an obnoxious manner, everyone in the section stand up, en masse, and turn and just stare at them ... blank-faced ... just stare and keep staring.

    Never stare at a New Yorker. They feel threatened and will attack.

    Pfft. That's why you get the entire section to do it. I wouldn't do it by myself.

    Yes, because if there's one thing Yankees fans hate, it's being stared at.

    Happy holiday birthday! In most lines of work it would mean you always get your BD off. Enjoy the game or whatever you do.

    I've noticed that today's player isn't concerned with the neatness of their eye black.

    I'm there fairly often for work. It's all about attitude. They just made you think that. Just give 'em attitude back. Works like a charm and they accept you into the fold. But if an entire group shows them in return that there is attitude all around them? It's an equalizer.

    The photo for the Yankees pitcher today looks a bit like one I recall seeing for Parmelee in seasons past:
